New Jersey Solar Consulting performs various advisory services depending on project needs. Below are descriptions and links to actual solar photovoltaic projects we've completed. (Client names / addresses removed).
Solar Financial Analysis: (Download Sample) Financials are at the heart of every solar project envisioned. Installer projections are bias. We produce clear, unbiased, financial ROI / IRR projections enabling confident decision making. While most installations involve outright purchase, consideration of leasing arrangements or PPA options can also be assessed.
Commercial Solar Feasibility Study: (Download sample). This study considers pre-installation factors and yields a report. Once the site is deemed feasible, optimization issues are key. Commercial solar should yield both electric savings and positive cash flow. Cash flow requirements and break-even period are of central focus in this particular report. You may also want to see the study outline.
PPA Proposal Review: (Download
Sample). Proposals from PPA developers are not easy to understand and vary
dramatically from one to the next. Your attorney may know the
legal points, but what's right, wrong, and customary is another thing. By reviewing your PPA proposal,
NJSC identifies areas of concern and makes suggestions.
Considering the 15+ year term of PPA agreements, every clause is
Installation Proposal Evaluation: (Download Sample). Commercial solar installation proposals vary in both approaches and cost. They are also lengthy and technical. Financial data is included, but based on differing assumptions between bidders. In this sample analysis, we measured the site and created our own baseline model system against which bids are compared to identify the most cost effective proposal.
PPA Proposal Review: (Download Sample). Proposals from PPA developers are not easy to understand and vary dramatically from one to the next. Your attorney may know the legal points, but what's right, wrong, and customary is another thing. By reviewing your PPA proposal, NJSC identifies areas of concern and makes suggestions. Considering the 15+ year term of PPA agreements, every clause is important.
Solar Field for Aggregated Municipal PV Production: Installing municipal solar on many municipal buildings when your town may have a suitable field which could accommodate a large PV system would make little sense. However, to date the New Jersey BPU does not allow aggregated production to off-set needs of separate structures. This is changing and in time it will surely be allowed. We can help you make your case part of a growing list of municipalities which prefer the aggregated production approach and are creating pressure for change.
Other municipal / non-profit / PPA solar consulting services can be offered depending on your specific needs and are priced accordingly.
Getting Started: Call us at 201-736-9388 or email to discuss your project. We can make installing solar PV a smooth, pleasant, and informed process.
